Jeff Nichols to LRFF

As predicted, Cannes' winner "Take Shelter" won't screen at the Little Rock Film Festival. But director Jeff Nichols will return to the fest to show his debut feature, "Shotgun Stories," and show clips from "Take Shelter" and talk about it and his experience in Cannes and whatever else you want to know.

The film screens at 8:15 p.m. next Saturday at Riverdale. Philip Martin will moderate the post-screening Q&A.

See the trailer for "Take Shelter" here.

Studios opt to bypass festivals because they're afraid press will cover a film and then ignore it when it comes around a second time during its national distribution (i.e. when a lot more people have an opportunity to see it), according to LRFF co-founder Brent Renaud.

Also, Renaud said when a film, like "Take Shelter" for instance, gets in Sundance and does so well at Cannes, studios often aren't interested in letting it out of the box again and risk bad reviews.
